2014 - Will This Be The Year?

You would think that, at my age (and I'm no spring chicken!) I'd have this whole "healthy lifestyle" thing down pat. After all, I've been at this for many years, and as a home care nurse, I see the results every single day of the destructive things we can do to ourselves that eventually make us unable to live our lives to their fullest.

Yeah, well....................... think again.

My brain tells me that I *know* what to do..............but something inside me ...

My brain tells me that I *know* what to do..............but something inside me keeps the signals from getting to where they need to go.

This year, for many reasons, has to be my year that it finally works.......that it finally sinks in.................that I do this - for me. If I am the best me I can be for *me*, then I can be the best me I can be for those I love...............

My Goals:
1. Learn to rely less on "numbers" and more on "look and feel"

2. When looking at numbers, be realistic in what I can attain and maintain and still feel healthy.

3. Maintain some kind of exercise program.

4. Stay active and healthy so I can play with The Princess....and camp......and bike......

My Program:
Counting calories, portion-control, and increasing exercise are things that have worked well for me as long as I do them! My exercise needs to incorporate some ST.........and has for a very long time.......

Personal Information:
My name is Linda, and I live in Central Ohio. I'm 58, I'm a nurse, and have finally learned to appreciate my own health. What I still haven't learned is to take better care of me by putting myself first in the "taking care of" department. That's a very hard thing to do and I plan on trying to be better about it in 2014.

Other Information:
I love to travel, love to camp, and love to bike (as in the pedal kind!). I also love to read but don't do nearly as much of it as I should!

Linda thank you so much for the hot chocolate. I can use one after a very long day at the gift show.

emoticon Linda for the maps, so appropriate! We recently bought a "large print" atlas because we were both having difficulty with small print.

Honestly, when the house sale finally closed, I felt like a ton of weight holding me down was gone. We figure we can manage the big RV for 3-5 years so lots of use for now.

Oh yes, spark friends for sure, Warrior or not. I'm good, over the flu. Still loving my new career but getting a bit bored need something more. Still having a tough time getting into a routine. I spent so many years up at 530am and going until 10pm or so that this 1130am get up for 130pm work start and then staying up when I get home is tough. I'm finding that I do pay following a schedule closer to my old one but wake up is around 10, then exercise, clean up, eat and go. Doing this I'm tired when I get home and relaxed enough they're shortly after to catch some zzz's with dh.

Hope all is well, good luck this round.

Hugs
